What is Teeth Whitening?
Your teeth will naturally begin to yellow and dull with age. However, certain lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking a lot of coffee and soda can have a significant impact on the way that your teeth look. We offer various options that can help you get the bright, dazzling smile you desire in a manner that fits with your individual needs. We offer both in-office and at-home options for whitening treatments, allowing you to choose a whitening option that fits with your individual lifestyle.
Why is Teeth Whitening needed?
When your teeth are yellowed, dulled and stained, you may not like the way that you look. You might find yourself avoiding smiling or even talking to people because of your dislike for your smile. Alternatively, you may be looking to improve your appearance for a big event, like a wedding or class reunion. Whitening is done quickly in our office and delivers the drastic results that you've always wanted.
Who is a candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Even professional whitening will not have an effect on the way that your restorations look. If you have veneers, bonding, fillings, crowns or bridge work, whitening won't lighten them or alter the color in any way. We can examine your teeth before we recommend whitening to you. If you have tooth decay or other dental problems, additional treatment may be needed.
What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?
Depending on the type of whitening treatment you choose, the process will differ. We utilize powerful but safe whitening gel, which is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. For our in-office whitening treatments, you come into our office to have the gel applied. The whitening gel will be left to sit on the teeth, and you will be able to leave the office with a brighter, whiter smile. For at home whitening treatments, we will make you custom whitening trays which are designed to hold the whitening gel in place on your teeth. We will provide you instructions on how to properly and safely apply these treatments in your own home, allowing you to get the dazzling smile you want without having to come in to the office.
If you think you might need or want whitening, call our office today and we will be happy to get you in for a consultation appointment.
